From filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out.

"This is one of his best films because he marries the anger and intensity with the restraint and poetry that he's so good at visually." - What the Flick?!
"Not since Bamboozled has a Spike Lee joint been this blunt and tightly rolled." - San Diego Reader
"Lee's latest is a rollercoaster that is laugh-out-loud when it isn't shocking you into stunned silence." - Digital Spy
"One of Lee's most thoroughly entertaining works. The cast and the crisp dialogue fire with purpose." - Cambridge Spy
